Each of our Firefighters For a Day had the opportunity to wear the self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) that firefighters use to breath clean air in hazardous environments. They donned the facemask and experienced what it was like to breath air from the unit. Pictured is Mitchell Taylor, son of Marilee Taylor, of Maumelle.
